The aircraft took off from a private airstrip with two adults and a young child on board. It failed to gain safe height and speed and stalled, crashing 270 m beyond the end of the strip. Only the adult passenger survived the accident. The aircraft was correctly configured for takeoff, and there was evidence that the engine was operating normally. Recorded data showed that the pilot had attempted to climb the aircraft above obstacles before achieving a safe climb speed. There was insufficient height for the pilot to recover once the aircraft had departed from controlled flight.
